How do you eradicate poverty? If you're part of the Ugandan paper bead industry, you do it one bead at a time. Our guest is Devin Hibbard.
Devin Hibbard, Bead for Life
Devin is co-founder and Executive Director of the Colorado-based non-profit Bead for Life, which was the first organization to help Ugandan refugee women sell their paper beads. Devin, with co-founders Torkin Wakefield and Ginny Jordan, discovered a woman making paper beads in a slum and knew they would be a top seller worldwide, enabling women who were previously poverty-stricken to start making a decent living.
In a unique twist, women who take part are expected to graduate and start their own businesses. Almost 3/4 of them do so, and the organization currently serves over 1400 women in Eastern and Central Uganda. Their mission is to eradicate poverty, one bead at a time.
In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace, our guest is Iya Nailah Sankofa owner of Tiwantiwa Abibiman Village and Artisans Collective which includes KA-ASO Afrikan/Adulawo Women's Textile Guild.
Excerpt from her website:
"KA-ASO Afrikan/Adulawo Women's Textile Guild is a social crafting club, network and studio program in which women of Afrikan ascent can come to hone their skills, refresh or learn new ones, network and study numerous techniques to create and adorn quality hand-crafted textiles from knitting, crochet, weaving, hooking and embroidery to tie-dye, batik, fabric painting, felting, beading, quilting, and more..."
TiwanTiwa Abibiman Village is one of the businesses in our OKOM Economic Development initiative.

Pursuing a degree in art education led to an introduction to all aspects of crafts that Ilene loves dearly to this day.
Ilene taught art, was a professional calligrapher and graphic designer for over 35 years, designed a double-award winning product for the crafts industry and has another patent-pending product for beading waiting to go into production. She wrote a book entitled "Create Your Own Bling", published by Krause Publications and she has several Kindle books on Amazon and one ready to publish on CreateSpace.
Ilene studied social media marketing, mobile marketing, and various other internet marketing before realizing that she is happiest expressing herself creatively. She is currently completing a course for Baby Boomers to return to what they have always known and loved – their own crafts expression – to become entrepreneurs by creating and selling their creations in online shops such as Etsy and Artfire, and newer ones such as craftsu, by utilizing social media to promote and build their business.
Ilene is a big proponent of using social media sites to build both personal and business relationships – her current and future endeavors are examples of this.

Susan Sorrell creates what she calls “Southeren Fried Fiber Arts” with amazing detail, use of color and many mixed media pieces she creates her fiber art which tend to jump off the fiber and into your creative soul. Her art makes you smile and discover something new every time you look at one of her pieces. She also paints with the same passion creating canvas that tell the story in living color.
Susan has been working in textile art since 1998 using paint, needle and thread, beading and embellishing on fabrics to express herself. She is not afraid of color and creates some of the most interesting and intricate designs that I have ever seen. Today, she'll share what inspires her to live the creative life.
